I went to my parents on Sunday to eat dinner and the conversation turned to the inevitable topic of what I wanted to do once I graduated. My parents were more than a little shocked when I said that I didn't know and that it didn't really matter what I did as long as I got paid pretty good money for it. My parents insisted that while it is good to get paid well, that I'll be happier if its a job I like to do. While this is true, this is a paradox. A job that I like to do. The thing with me is that I've never had a job I liked (although one came close because I worked alone and got to listen to my ipod and no one got on my ass if I was slacking-the reason this job was not a job I liked however, was because it was at Wal-Mart-no, not working for Wal-Mart...just working at Wal-Mart for Frito-Lay). I know what you're thinking. Obviously, none of these jobs are fun because they're jobs everyone hates but has to work when they're young because they can't get anything else. And you'd be right. However, the fact of the matter is that all of the things I like to do, I can't get paid for doing. So, I'm "selling out", which is what my friends and I call it, when a person goes to work at a job they know they'll hate but get paid a lot of money for it. I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter what I do. I just want a 9 to 5 job that pays well, where I don't have to take much of it home so I can do the things I do like to do which is spend time with my wife and my friends, play in my bands, watch movies, play video games, read books etc. Is that so bad? Maybe, I'll be more ambitious in the future, and try to find better careers that suit me. But right now, the only thing that matters is being at home, and whenever I'm away, I won't be happy no matter what job I have.
